When it comes to shortbread cookies I have mixed feelings. Some times I love them and sometimes, well, not so much.
For some reason I always thought they were difficult of tricky. So, I tried a few recipes with mixed results. Regular flour, rice flour, butter, oil.... Nothing was quite as I wanted.
So, until I find a recipe to LOVE, I will be using my good old sugar cookie recipe.
What? You might ask.... Trust me, I know what I am doing.
My sugar cookie recipe MINUS the egg and MINUS 1 tbsp flour!
For the lemon flavour, just add the zest of 1 lemon and 2 tbsp lemon juice (I like them very lemony!).
Really lemony and buttery! They just melt in your mouth!
